Just ordered from Cackle hatchery. Has anyone had experience with them?
Lots of people have experience with Cackle. Try using the search.
Thanks That was helpfull! I'm new to this and didn't realise I could use the search feature like that.
Cackle Hatchery is great! They have very nice quailty birds.
I purchased 20 barred rock (5 roos and 15 pullets) back in April and they are doing great. They are all healthy upon arrival and I will definitely purchase from them again and I highly recommend Cackle Hatchery to anyone.
Excellent quality birds!!!
I purchased some 6 week olds that came from there. I am really pleased with them and probably will order directly from them next spring.
I had an awful experience with Cackle. They didn't process my order that was placed online, I couldn't get through on the phone, they eventually must have found it because after I finally got through on the phone I got a letter with "canceled per customer request" printed on it.
It really screwed up some stuff for 4-H deadlines for me. I think they were overwhelmed this spring, but I would check to make sure they have your order. I might try them again if they change their procedures and can give a ship date and stuff immediately rather than the "you'll get a letter in the mail in 2 weeks" procedure that they were using this spring.
I've heard good things about their chicks, I just couldn't handle the bad customer service.
I got 15 beautiful and healthy RIR's and I love them. I have to agree with Kendra......customer experience was awful........and I couldn't get through on the phone either. Eventually, it worked itself out but they need to hire more help if their business is so good.
I just ordered from them again today........keeping my fingers crossed.
Yeah, there was something screwy going on with them this spring. I ordered through my local farm store and it took them almost 2 months to fill my order. They kept sending just bits and pieces to the store instead of the whole order at once. When I finally got my order they shorted me to chicks. The farm store gave me 2 Toulouse goslings in place of them so it worked out. I have never had issues with them in the past.
